The kitchen is the centerpiece and focal point of your home. You want to make sure it is warm and inviting, and that it conveys who you are as a family.
If you’re planning a kitchen remodel this year, take a look at these five kitchen remodel trends.
Kitchen Remodel Trends for 2017
These kitchen remodel trends are proving to have staying power, and have been sticking around in the restoration game for a few years, while still managing to feel fresh and modern.
Gray Color Schemes
People are moving away from beige as a neutral and embracing gray.
It has a more modern feel while maintaining the neutral feel necessary as the backdrop for any kitchen remodel.
Gray provides the perfect canvas for whatever color scheme you desire and keeps your kitchen feeling updated and fresh.
We saw wood being lauded as the newest innovation in kitchen cabinetry recently and wondered where the author had been for the last two hundred years.
Wood planks as an alternative to granite or marble on countertops, though? That’s a kitchen remodel throwback we can get behind.
Butcher block countertops lend an old-world air to your kitchen without feeling dated or kitschy.
Pops of Color
Once you get that beautiful gray on the walls, there are endless options for adding color to your kitchen.
From painting your cabinets a bold springtime green to bright patterned upholstery in an eat-in dining area, you can use these color surprises to give your kitchen a cohesive look while still letting your personality shine through
This a trend that’s been going for awhile and shows no sign of slowing down.
Open shelving is a remnant of the farmhouse trend, and while it goes well with butcher block counters and a farmhouse sink, you can make it work in almost any kitchen remodel project.
Open shelving gives a small kitchen a more open feel and adds an airy brightness to even a large kitchen.
If you can’t quite bring yourself to go full-open shelving, we also love the trend of glass doors on existing cabinetry. They provide the same open feel as open cabinets and may be a safer option for houses with cats or small children, who may be prone to knocking breakables off shelves.
Windows for Days
There’s something refreshing and nostalgic about doing dishes with kitchen windows flung open, letting in the breeze.
That slice of Americana can be yours with the addition of a few windows above your sink.
Unless you are lucky enough to have a very large kitchen, it’s easy for this room to feel cramped. Windows help open up the space and provide natural light that softens the feel of the entire space.
When you’re getting ready to do a kitchen remodel, you want your space to be timeless. But paying attention to trends can help you create a functional, modern space.
